Thanks so much Dulcie and Matthew, owners of the Wild Rose Studio

I decided to go with the Home theme and had lots of fun making this card.

1) Cut a white base card using the Louise nested dies from Crafter's Companion.
2) Cut a panel in pale pink card using the same die, and one in brown card using the smallest die. Stick the door in the centre of the pink panel with foam tape, and add a small strip of card for the letterbox and use a hole punch to cut the door handle. Coat the handle and letterbox with glossy accents and leave to dry.
3) Cut the roof edge using the largest and one of the smaller dies, then trim it to fit the pink panel and raise it on foam tape.  I fussy cut the chimney from a brown stitched rectangle that was in my stash and fixed it to the roof in between the base card and roof  edge

4) Take some white card and stamp the Christmas lights and wreath (from a Penny Black set that came free with a magazine many moons ago, but yet to see ink)  and then colour them before fussy cutting them.
5) Cut a couple of thin strips of brown card and stick them to the roof line before arranging the Christmas lights along them. 
6) Stamp the Christmas tree from the Papertrey Ink Winter Hills set in green ink and fussy cut it before adding some berry dots with a red glaze pen. Cut a couple of pot shapes from brown card and add them to the trees before placing them next to the door.
7) On the inside of the card, I stamped a tree from the My Favorite Things Merry Christmoose stamp set and stamped over it with a sentiment from the PTI Rustic wreath set. 

8)  To finish off, put the wreath on the door and use a clear glaze pen to give the lights some shine.

I hope you will pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge blog to see some amazing cards from the team, and join in with us this month.

Beautiful and festive design you created. Looks like a wonderful place to spend the holidays. The chimney gives it such a cozy feel and vibe. Awesome sauce and fantabulous trees and that little wreath is perfect.
